John Deere 6065e Tier 4 regen?
« on: January 05, 2021, 09:39:02 PM »
I bought a 2018 John Deere 6065e in August of 2018.  It's got a Tier 4 engine that is supposed to do an automatic regen every once in a while.  I now have 165 hours on it and it's never done a regen.  Up to this point I've been running road diesel... the green stuff.  I can't remember if it's under 15ppm sulphur or under 7ppm.  In any case, my tractor has never done a regen.  I've even tried to make it do one manually and I can't get it to do a regen.

Should I be concerned?

If you don't have any check engine lights on and the engine has derated it self it must not be calling for a regen. I am surprised its not calling for it and a light is not on. I would call JD and check with them. If its got a problem you want it taken care of before the emission warranty is up. This is the reason I updated when you still could get the tier 3 engines. I am old enough I hope to never have a tier 4 but I am sure I will some time. Its getting to the point you can't hardly get them deleted any more either.

The 9 liter 6090 Deere engine we have in our harvester is Tier 4 it doesnt burn that often either its per X amount of gallons of fuel used.

Id take a tier 4 over the three any day one reason is they dont burn as hot all the time. Two theyre easier on fuel and most of the time theyll have a longer warranty then the tier 3.

For what its worth. 
I have a 2017 5085E with 445 hours on it that hasnt had to do a regen yet. 
My dealer said it will do it when it needs it. 
He said keep running it the way I am. 
So far its been an excellent tractor. 
Pop the hood and make sure to slide the radiators out and clean them if youre in dusty ground.

My Kubota 71hp tier 4 Regens about every 20-30 hrs. I'm guess those that go a looonnng time between regens must run it hot or hard consistently so as not to collect much junk in the DPF. My use is more lightly loaded.

When I bought the tractor they said I had to run it hot and not leave it idling like the old style tractors. 
Seems to be working like they explained it to me. 
No complaints yet.

I'm comforted to know that your tractor has over 400 hours and hasn't done a regen.  Do you, by chance, use 15ppm sulfer (road diesel)?

I am using on road diesel. 
I always buy my fuel from the same place and use the same additive. 
No winter fuel issues yet and its been almost 8 years. 
Years ago I used home heating fuel and off road fuel. 
Whatever was cheaper. 
Had problems with fuel lines and inline filters getting gummy. 
Seems like no issues by using the same place for fuel all the time.
